Alyogyne ‘Blue Heeler’ – Native Hibiscus


Alyogyne ‘Blue Heeler’ features gorgeous purple Hibiscus-like flowers and interestingly textured foliage on a low mounding shrub that flowers for many months of the year. Use it as a feature plant for rockeries or towards the front of a shrubbery, while it also makes an outstanding pot plant for sunny balconies and courtyards. Give it a light trim after a heavy flush of flowers.
